Auto Accident Injury
It should not be a surprise that instances of motor vehicle accidents are rising every day since the traffic grows and the gridlock continues. Some of these accidents are more than "fender benders."Some are responsible for complete lifestyle changes for their victims, completely altering the life that you previously enjoyed because of serious brain trauma, loss of limbs, paralysis, or chronic pain.
Uninsured Motorist Cases Work
Our significant experience in dealing with uninsured and underinsured motorist cases is a major benefit to our clients. We have worked with many arbitrators. We know who should be selected. Our underinsured motorist lawyers also understand how best to represent a case to the panel of arbitrators so they understand why damages are being sought. Generally, these cases are handled outside of the traditional justice system since these claims are litigated through a private arbitration system. Choosing an arbitrator on your behalf is a significant part of our expertise since the insurance company will choose an arbitrator. Once this is decided, then these arbitrators will then agree upon a third arbitrator. The claim is then litigated in front of the panel of three arbitrators.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists
When a driver refuses or is unable to carry proper motor vehicle insurance, that driver puts more than just him – or herself at risk. If the driver injures another person, the insurance will be inadequate to cover the damages. Injured parties, however, may be covered by their own insurance policies; uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage protects accident victims in these cases. If you have been involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver, it is important to contact an attorney to create a plan of action. Depending on the facts of your case and the extent of the injuries involved, however, you may be able to break those tort thresholds and have the benefit of an unlimited right to bring suit. While there are many issues involved in this complex legal matter, it basically boils down to whether you have suffered a serious injury often involving the permanent loss of a bodily function. In these severe cases, the Pennsylvania legislature determined that it would be more of a burden to continue the limitation of the insurance policy.
